, with the election five weeks away, president obama and mitt romney will face off. both men have been prepping heavily. evidence shows presidential debates can shift a race. joining me now alan schroeder, a professor of the school of journalism in northeast university in boston. author of "presidential debates, 50 years of high-risk tv" and patrick millsap who served as chief of staff in newt gingrich's campaign. patrick, you say that newt gingrich's pious baa loney line is one of the strongest hits during his campaign run against mitt romney. >> can we drop some of the pious baloney? you ran in '94 and lost. that's why you weren't serving in the senate for rick santorum. suddenly citizenship showed up in your mind, level with the american people. you have been running since the 1990s. >> how much of those zingers are pre-thought out and what does mitt romney have to do to avoid taking a big hit tomorrow night? >> that was all newt. part of great thing about newt, he knew the topic, knew the weak points, but prepared to answer the question. if you can come up with pious baloney, that puts a ch

the senate and that he can block president obama's agenda. so let's just be honest about what's going on here. >> senior congressional correspondent dana bash, our guide, this week as we check on the key races. we have been following this race. it is already -- it long since has gotten personal. last night, kicked it up a notch. >> reporter: oh, my, sure did. i was in massachusetts doing a story on this race this summer and talked to both candidates. and it was already going to be an intense race. and it was already clear then that this -- these two -- let's be honest, these two people not only are they running against each other for a seat they don't seem to like each other. that was incredibly clear with the sound bite you just played, but also clear with this -- maybe the line of the night, which came from scott brown. listen. >> if you're going to comment on my record, i would at least have you refer to it -- >> excuse me. >> go ahead. >> i'm not a student in your classroom, please let me respond, okay? thank you. >> reporter: the back story there is not just the obvious, which is that wa

who are excited and especially going into the last five weeks of the campaign. mitt romney needs that big time. >> i'm not sure, dana, how much this plays into everything. but when barack obama is on the campaign stump, some of the things that he uses are very effective with the audience. he gets a lot of feedback from that campaign stump. and when he brought that game into that auditorium last night and started to talk about things like, you know, like ending tax breaks and getting people back to work, it seemed like those things backfired with a very powerful mitt romney standing next to him. let me show you exactly what i mean and i want to ask you about it on the other side. >> part of the way to do is to not give tax breaks to companies that are shipping shops overseas. right now, you can actually take a deduction for moving a plan overseas. i think most americans would say that doesn't make sense and all of that raises revenue. >> you said you debt a deduction for take ago plant overseas? look. i've been in business 25 years. i have no idea what you're talking about. i mayb

away, we're taking a very in depth look all week long at latinos in america, which is a key voting bloc in this election. this is the latest cnn orc poll of latino voters. president obama, the clear favorite over mitt romney, leading 70% to 26%. you can fairly say that's not even close and it is well outside the margin of error and that's critical because you know there is a saying that there is power in numbers. at least 12.2 million people expected to show up at the polls on election day. but that's barely half of latinos who are eligible to vote. and it could come down to location, location, location. the hispanic vote could be the deciding factor in several states, including the swing state of nevada. which is where miguel marquez takes us in the battle to win their vote. >> reporter: it might sound like mexico. but this is the fight for the white house. welcome to washo county, nevada, the front line in this battleground state. washo county's 250,000 voters are expected to decide whether the nevada goes blue or red. and latinos, about 30,000 votes here, could make the critical diff

: the president did get digs in. >> for 18 months he's been running on this tax plan. and now, five weeks before the election, he's saying that his big bold idea is never mind. >> reporter: but he also showed flashes of the kind of testiness sources in both camps feared from the candidates, except obama's was directed at the moderator, not romney. >> the last point i'd make before -- >> your two minutes is up. >> i think i had five seconds before you interrupted me, was -- >> reporter: romney did have his own awkward moderator moment. >> i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs, i like big bird, like you, too. >> reporter: one of the surprising parts of the president's performance is what he didn't say, no mention of romney's 47% remark, no talk of bain capital, nothing about romney's own taxes. he did play the romney is a hypocrite card when it comes to health care. >> the irony is we've seen this model work really well in massachusetts. because governor romney did a good thing working with democrats in the state to set up what is essentially the identical model and as a consequence
